There are specific modes to look for in a rice cooker. Some of them are actually useful. Others may not be so handy, but they only add to the price. The rice cooker specialists from www.asiaricecookers.com recommend one setting in particular though – the keep-warm mode. This mode has nothing to do with the actual cooking. Instead, it practically keeps the rice warm once it is cooked. This way, you can start the cooker, go shop or exercise and never worry about finding the rice cold, since it will be kept warm. Got a larger family? Anyone can eat when they want to.
